The Department of Health can confirm that on behalf of Abbott Nutrition, the Bermuda General Agency (BGA) Ltd. is initiating a proactive product recall of “Similac” Pro-Sensitive and Pro-Advance plastic container options manufactured in Sturgis, Michigan, one of the company’s manufacturing facilities.
This recall is after four consumers launched complaints in the US relating to Cronobacter sakazakii or Salmonella Newport in infants who had consumed the powder formula manufactured specifically in their Sturgis, Michigan facility.
BGA confirms that following product research, only two items of the Similac line as listed above were identified as being affected by the recall for Bermuda. An investigation is ongoing, and as of today, no distributed product has tested positive for either bacterium.
To check if your Similac product is one of the affected recall models, please locate the numbers and letters on the bottom of the container for review. Affected product numbers are the first two digits, 22 through 37, contain K8, SH or Z2 and will have the expiration date of April 2022 or after. For retailers, the BGA stock numbers are 010 373 10, UPC 00 70074 68091Pro-Sensitive and 010 373 17, UPC 00 70074 68089 Pro-Advanced. This can also be verified by visiting www.similacrecall.com. Please note these Similac products are in plastic containers only and not metal tins.
Please do not feed infants recalled powdered formula. Throw it away or return it for a refund.
BGA advises that if a consumer wants to return their Similac item, please return it to the store of purchase, and a credit will be processed for you by the store, which BGA will underwrite.
If a business would like to return to BGA any potentially impacted specific lot codes, please contact your salesperson directly for this purchase or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
